On the path of the great vehicle mystery, we encountered even more tracks. Some, we identified quickly as deer.
Others we weren’t quite sure of.
We are going to investigate these prints further in the following weeks.
One child remarked, “Wow! This animal must have a lot of legs to have so many different foot prints!”
This morning we made a dash for the woods, making quick use of the clear skies. The slightly muddy ground presented us with clues as we headed deeper along the trail. Beasts had been here.
Within a few minutes, we spotted an assembly of bounding white tails leaping away.
As we quietly snuck forward, the children realized that one had stopped within eyesight. We stopped, as well, and gaped in awe.
